Never Rarely Sometimes Always Digital Release Set for April 3

-

NBCUniversal has announced that the Never Rarely Sometimes Always Digital release date has been set for Friday, April 3rd. Focus Features’ urgent and poignant drama had originally opened theatrically on March 13th. Eliza Hittman’s critically-acclaimed, multi award-winning film will be available to rent at participating on-demand services for $19.99 (pre-order at Amazon).

After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and walking away with a Special Jury award, Never Rarely Sometimes Always went on to win the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, and currently holds an acclaimed 99% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The title is the second from Focus Features to take this model, along with Autumn De Wilde’s reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic Emma., which was available on demand along with Universal’s The Hunt and The Invisible Man on March 20th. Joining these previously released films on April 3rd, the Never Rarely Sometimes Always Digital release will be available on demand for a 48 hour viewing period.

In the film, when 17-year-old Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) looks at herself in the mirror, she can see the signs beginning to manifest in her body. She visits a pregnancy center, where her apprehensions are confirmed by a positive result on a drugstore pregnancy kit. But the center’s pamphlets aimed at encouraging motherhood and adoption don’t tell Autumn what she wants and needs to know.

What Autumn learns about reproductive services through her own research is not encouraging. As a minor she cannot obtain an abortion in her home state without parental consent. That leaves her to consider the age-old methods women have turned to when confronting unintended pregnancies.

Though Autumn keeps mum about her dilemma, her distress is clear to her cousin and best friend Skylar (Talia Ryder), who sees her every day at school and at their part-time jobs as cashiers. As soon as she understands Autumn’s situation, Skylar’s support is swift and decisive, without a word needing to be spoken.

With the address of a Brooklyn clinic in hand, the cousins board an early morning bus bound for New York City. But their trip takes an unexpected turn when Autumn learns that a one-visit procedure isn’t possible. As the cousins navigate two fraught days and nights in an unfamiliar and overwhelming city, their journey becomes one of profound solidarity, compassion and friendship.

Written and directed by Eliza Hittman, the film also stars Théodore Pellerin, Ryan Eggold, and Sharon Van Etten.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always is produced by PASTEL’s Adele Romanski and Sara Murphy, the production outfit behind Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk. The film reunites Eliza Hittman and Beach Rats cinematographer Hélène Louvart. The film was developed by BBC Films who also co-financed production alongside Tango Entertainment and Mutressa Movies.

The executive producers are Rose Garnett for BBC Films, Tim Headington and Lia Buman for Tango Entertainment, Elika Portnoy and Alex Orlovsky for Mutressa Movies.
